karmark678 JamesCrow the one i ask doing only action… but easy or not we can agree on one thing – this game doing things that no other company done with an mmo :)

ill wait to see what fc have in mind for the issue 13 pvp edition because this aspect of the game left unupdated since issue 6.

there are somethings i want to see in the future like:
1. Arsenal – like the wardrobe but for weapons. 
2. New Factions.
3. New Races, now after “the Darkness” cancelled this is the only game that can give us vampires and werewolf – and if you ask me they can do that as stand alone expansion (like arena.net done in the first guildwars or as i called it – the better guild wars :)
4. Books… real book – this game have alot stories to tell.

i know that 2-4 take time but im here to stay :)

also karmark, what is your name in game?

JamesCrow karmark678 Yes I agree it is always easier with an alt but I did say I took that into account and still found it to be a much more casual an experience . I have talked to new players and they don’t find it an easy game when it comes to the puzzles and investigations but these were not effected by the changes .

i don’t think the game is more easy after the experience but when you start with an alt you already know what to do and this is why it more easier for you.

i talked to new players and they said this game is not easy and they doing quests before reach to the next zone.

i didn’t start an alt because i have all the sp but still not all the skills in the game.
but i think the eng game going to be easy with the next update after they going to change how the tokens work… and im ok with that.

MJ Guthrie rogerstim37 I went thru it with an alt recently and even when I take into account it usually is slightly easier the second time around there was a marked difference to what it was before . Its a much more casual experience now .

glad to see you playing TSW,  i think alot of players not knowing this game because of guild wars2 and ESO B2P.
and this is one of the original MMO ever.

MJ Guthrie rogerstim37 I think it is a fair accusation in most cases but you did notice I did not say all . Your post seems very defensive and I am aware how much you like the game and in no way was it meant to be directed at you personally .

If you have played through with an alt . What is your take on the mobs in Transylvania ? Did you find them easier to kill than the first time around or about the same ?  I ask this because this is the element of the game I found easier to do over night . 

On the day before the enhanced player experience I could be killed by a nest of vampires if I didn’t think about what I was doing and in the days after it I was never killed once and in a horror game it just robbed if of its atmosphere . 

Would you also agree or not that the enhanced player experience was designed to get people through to the point where they could get to buying the DLCS in a more timely fashion ?

For me Solomon Island is still the best area in the game, specially Savage Coast! Savage Coast!
I’m about to create an Alt to test the Enhanced Player Experience… From what I can tell so far… I really like it because it, beside the sales and new issues, brought a lot of new players, I mean, there was a time the game had tons of empty areas (when I came back to the game last year, I think I saw like 3 or 4 ppl in Egypt, most of players were already end-game guys, so PvP was always packed, Agartha too with ppl looking for NM parties) but areas like Egypt that were in-between, really looked like a Desert haha, not a single living soul beside me, mobs and NPCs, now I see players all around and that’s really good! More players = more cash flowing = longer life to the game = more content = win-win situation for all ^_^

rogerstim37 I would stop accusing others of not knowing because frankly, you are not them and cannot judge their situation or what experience they have with the game. I totally get that you didn’t like the change,but that’s no reason to incorrectly label others to try and prove your point. 
Having played through with an alt myself , I personally find your assessment incorrect.

I think had I got to the end of Transylvania and was in Tokyo when Funcom introduced the enhanced player experience I would still be playing now . I have tried going back but the area is a lot easier than it used to be and I end up giving up on it because it leaves a bad taste in my mouth ( a bit like when I take a look a WoW now and again through the 10 day trials ) 

Had I been in Tokyo when the Enhanced Player Experience happened I think I would still be playing it quite happily and I think Funcom were justified in streamlining the difficulty arc over the entire base game because I did know people that gave up once they got to Blue Mountain but as often is the case they went too far .

I know fans of the game will say its not that different but quite frankly most of them don’t know because they were in Tokyo when the changes happened and the only real way they would see how changed it is would be to go back and play it through again with an alt . 

I’m afraid for me Funcom like Blizzard are another company I would never invest any time in by playing any games they release in the future .

Fun to watch.  I gotta go back and do Transylvania again after OD’ing on Tokyo.  Miss the outdoors and the somewhat more lighthearted (for TSW) faerie themes.  Thanks, MJ!
